Important Works by Renato Bassoli

An acclaimed sculptor, ceramicist, furniture and jewelry designer, Renato Bassoli expressed a rigorous passion for living. Deeply rooted in humanism, nature, and above all, the celebration of life, Bassoli’s artistic philosophy fueled his lengthy career. From hot-enameled ceramic works and steel constructions to thoughtfully sculpted clay sculptures and precious jewels, Bassoli drew from the elements to create an exuberant and expressive body of work. On June 10th, in collaboration with Casati Projects, Wright presents Fire, Earth, Air and Water: Important Works by Renato Bassoli—a significant collection by the celebrated designer that embodies his artistic spirit and elemental power.

I endeavor always to do my best, and above all, I try to create things and objects that are good—technically perfect and naturally pleasing to the eye.
